Tips for Caulking Trim Before Painting – Type of Caulk

I recommend a top quality siliconized caulk.  Don’t go cheap.  Don’t use a 100% silicone caulk when looking to paint after caulking.  The paint will not adhere.  Be careful too to make sure the caulk is completely dry or your paint will crack.

Hidden Benefits of Caulking Before Painting

By caulking your trim before painting, your rooms will look very finished.  You’ll also discover that caulking around windows and exterior doors frames cut down the amount of air that leaks into your home. 

Don’t forget, if you need an estimate on caulking and painting your trim, give me a call.  My team and I have been serving the Orland Park, Homer Glen, Mokena, Frankfort, Tinley Park, New Lenox, Lemont, Orland Hills, Palos Park, St. John IN, and all of Chicago area for 30+ years.
